Pics of Old Stuff From Rome

Colosseum!  I went to the Colosseum!

And saw the Constantine Arch.

And used my zoom on the Arch.  Dude, check out the relief on that thing!

I saw lots of ruins.  Even got my picture taken in front of them.

This one is interesting.  Look straight across behind me.  That's Palantine Hill.  Now look below me, where the helicopters and planes are.  Apply imagination.  That's a large round track (stretching out in both directions behind me).  Now imagine chariot races there.  Conclusion:  Circus Maximus.  (Now used, apparently, for temporary displays of aircraft.)
